Tulse Hill Literacy Project (TULIP)

Literacy is a vital life skill. The Tulse Hill Literacy Project (TULIP) was an exciting 2-year literacy project, funded by the London Community Foundation. It was designed to support adult speakers of other languages (ESOL) who have low level literacy skills in English to better achieve their life potential, support their children’s learning and well-being, and access local services and support through improved literacy. It will also help reduce social and civic isolation, and build local awareness, capacity and project sustainability.

Across the two years it was running, TULIP provided seven fun and engaging workshops/events for 52 families and ran three literacy short courses for 37 participants.

Additionally, in Year 2, TULIP trained and supported 9 local volunteers to provide literacy support to local residents at drop-in sessions and a wide range of community events run by the project and local partners and stakeholders.

The project activity was delivered in local Lambeth venues and in spaces provided by partners on the Tulse Hill Estate.
